Cubs eyeing Kurt Suzuki
As the Cubs look for another catcher to work alongside Welington Castillo, CSN Chicago‘s Patrick Mooney reports they’re interested in Kurt Suzuki.
Rather than making a splash and going for free agents like Brian McCann or Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Mooney cites a source as saying the Cubs have interest in the more low-profile Suzuki. He spent time with the Nationals and A’s last year — two fine pitching staffs — and could be a strong candidate to help mentor Castillo.
Mooney says fellow Cubs catcher Dioner Navarro has priced himself out of Chicago and will likely end up elsewhere so he can get more playing time.
